Prevalent in the major works of Leonardo Da Vinci and underlying many of his design compositions, is the phi relationship (also known as the Golden Ratio or the Golden Mean), a ratio of approximately 1:1.618, found in nature and creation, and inherent in the Fibonacci sequence. The Golden Rectangle, the Golden Triangle, and the Golden Pyramid, all based on the Golden Ratio are all appear prominent in the work of Leonardo Da Vinci. He referred to the Golden Ratio as the "divine proportion".

The Metropolitan Museum of Art - Young Woman Drawing At one time ascribed to Jacques-Louis David, this engaging image has now been recognized as the work of Marie-Denise Villers. Although little known today, Villers was a gifted pupil of Girodet and exhibited in the salons, where her portraits attracted attention. This canvas, which was exhibited in the 1801 Salon, may be a self-portrait.
